Was that face value? I paid $79 per seat for the show coming up in Denver at the shlepsi center. They are 3rd level, but still, that does seem really high.

In RW's defense, he did offer a lottery system for most venues to bypass scalping. I entered, but didn't get picked, but still was able to buy through tickethorse.

Anyone ever seen 'In the Flesh'? It's def. in my top 3 for concert DVDs.

Wow. I could never rationalize paying that much to see a single performance. Hope it's worth it! I don't even like spending more than $50 on a show.

Seriously, Roger has a lot of nerve to do that to his fans.

I guess it's all relative, for some, $300/ticket is not that much cash. Rich bastards! LOL

The MOST I ever paid for a ticket was a NYE Show 3yrs ago, I think $80, and that was a weeks pay for me! yup, it's all relative

here-here Monte, I am the 99% lol

Saw him in San Jose and most money I've ever paid - and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It's much, much more than a concert.

I saw the San Jose show as well. Through work,there is a suite at the tank. We rarely get any tix,a few sharks games etc. Luckily,nobody at the top had any clue who roger waters was/is.
Got 6 passes to the box,which was at the opposite end of the stage. Like watching it unfold from the top of a mountain. All sights and sounds were perfect!

I get it....

Alison Krauss and Union Station, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.

If these are the only two shows I see at FloydFest this year, the $600 ticket will have been worth it.

Does it count if I know I am going to see a lot more than just those two?

I would say steep is a bit of an understatement. But if I had the extra cash I would go see him also. Not many people I would pay that kind of money to see these days. Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac maybe.

great show though. saw Waters in Philly (Nov 2010) and tic was about $178 for a lower level seat. Think they had to eliminate alot of seats because of the huge production so prices were jacked up. Worth every penny!! Enjoy!

For $300 that ticket better come with an erotic massage.

And Roger better give it.

Suffice it to say that would be yet another reason to find other outlets for my cash.
